#1 Contenders Match Set For Next Week's RAW; Winner Will Challenge Brock Lesnar For The Universal Title At SummerSlam

Who will be heading into "Suplex City" on August 19th?

To open tonight's show RAW GM Kurt Angle put together two Triple-Threat matches where the winners of those matches would go on to compete in singles action next week and the winner of that match will be the new #1 contender to Brock Lesnar's coveted WWE Universal Championship.

The first of the two Triple-Threat's saw Drew McIntyre, Finn Balor and Roman Reigns battle it out for the opportunity to compete in the #1 contenders match and the man who emerged victorious was the individual who feels that he is the true Universal Champion, Roman Reigns.


The main event of the show featured former WWE Intercontinental Champion Seth Rollins, Elias, and Bobby Lashley in the second of the Triple-Threat matches. The closing sequence of the bout saw Lashley catch Elias with a bulldozing spear to pick up the victory and continue the momentum he kick-started last night at 'Extreme Rules'


Next week on Monday Night RAW Bobby Lashley will take on the man who he defeated at 'Extreme Rules' but this time around there is more than just bragging rights on the line as Roman Reigns and Bobby Lashley will do battle and the winner will be heading to Brooklyn, NY on August 19th to challenge Brock Lesnar for the WWE Universal Championship at SummerSlam.
